Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I've done the exact same thing. After using Unity for a couple of days and hating it I've installed Gnome 3. I've expected it to be great, it was a great disappointment. Thought about installing Mint but decided to give Debian a try instead. After several hours of tweaking to make it just right (mostly upgrading to wheezy (testing), font tweaks and theme) I'm in love. I don't think I'll ever use anything else.
Having played Miami Chase on Amiga before GTA on PC I always thought that it was greatly influenced by it to say the least. Were you guys even aware of Miami Chase?

Why do you think it's a security theater? I'm sure some implementation of email obfuscation are weak and there are already bots that can harvest for example someone at example dot com or similar, but stronger techniques should be able to fool the bots.
I remember having a lot of fun playing Frontier on my Amiga. It's the only game I've played that has a realistic space flying physics. For example, if you come out of the hyperspace at some 1000km/s , the fastest way to slow down is to turn around and fire the main engines. I also loved manually landing on space stations. First you get to the star system, navigate to the planet, get to the space station (monitoring the relative speed to the station so you don't slam into it) then find the docking bay, sync your rotation to the stations and slowly float in.
You could have bought a USB->Parallel cable. My LaserJet 5P (which I found on the street in 1999) works perfectly fine with it under Linux. I haven't tested it under other operating systems.
I remember constantly having a right arrow image imprinted on my thumb and now being able to play because of the blisters. This is indeed old condition.
I've recently discovered automysqlbackup.sh. It took 4 minutes to set up and now it happily backs up all my databases to the local disk and emails them to me. It's brilliant!
Human eye is actually able to detect single photons but we're programmed not to notice them unless they are above a certain threshold.
The human eye is very sensitive but can we see a single photon? The answer is that the sensors in the retina can respond to a single photon. However, neural filters only allow a signal to pass to the brain to trigger a conscious response when at least about five to nine arrive within less than 100 ms. If we could consciously see single photons we would experience too much visual "noise" in very low light, so this filter is a necessary adaptation, not a weakness.
